Puerto Rico voters signal desire for statehood - NY Daily News

    Will we have 102 Senators soon ?   Puerto Rican statehood advocates are gaining in strength, but would the rest of the country agree to adding a state, the first time since Hawaii in 1960.
     It's a sensitive issue as the calculus in DC would be 'who benefits politically".  Would it be an automatic extra two Democrats in the Senate and an extra five or six electoral votes for the Dems every four years ?
     It sure would be if the GOP doesn't do something about its estrangement from much of the Hispanic community.
      Even though it would make for an uneven number of Senators, its OK with me if we have another state.

Why not? I'll tell you why not.

The GOP will oppose it because it has become, as Pat Buchanan said, The Party of the Confederate States.

Ku Klux Klan anyone?

It would be great if they could trade Jefferson county out for putting Puerto Rico in. We could be our own country.

This debate shouldn't be about politican leanings, but rather taxation and representation. PR and. DC should both be given statehood.

I always thought that 102 was an even number. Thanks for correcting me.
